Samurai Jack, God of Wandering Swordsmen
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The family crest that can be seen on his cloak.
  • Theme Song: Gotta get back… back to the past, Samurai Jack! Watch out!
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: 100% Adoration Rating, Badass Normal, Beware the Nice Ones, The Chosen One, Chronic Hero Syndrome, Clothing Damage, Determinator, The Drifter, Fish out of Temporal Water, Humble Hero, Katanas Are Just Better, Knight Errant, Martial Pacifist, Master of All, Master Swordsman, Mr. Fanservice, Only Known by Their Nickname, Warrior Prince
  • Domains: Honor, Warriors, Time, Family
  • Allies: Ashi (his wife), Link, Fa Mulan, Po, Iroh, Leonidas, The Demoman, Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Skips, Dexter, Jin, Ryu (Street Fighter)
  • Enemies: Aku, Scaramouche, The Lich, GLaDOS, Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, Ultron, Melkor
  • Rivals: Cloud Strife, Afro Samurai, Himura Kenshin, Roronora Zoro
  • Odd Friendship: Sanji
  • Opposes: Cornelia li Britannia
  • Ascended when the Pantheon realized he had been through far too much to not be.
  • Attacked Iroh after hearing his voice. Luckily, Iroh was able to hold his own until the other gods finally managed to convince him that he wasn’t Aku. The old firebender forgave him for the incident when Jack told him his story, and talked about various other things over tea. Jack constantly visits him now, whether it be him feeling homesick and wanting to get the feeling of home, learning the fighting style behind firebending to add to his arsenal of various abilities, or sometimes just coming for tea and a game of Pai Sho (Iroh was surprised to find he was actually very good at it.).
  • When Mulan heard of his ascension, she went to him hoping to get training. He agreed, but Mulan became confused when their first training session involved bamboo sticks of all things instead of regular swords; she found out the hard way just how formidable Jack is with any weapon he gets his hands on. Since then, though, he has taught her many things, such as ‘Jumping good’, and fighting without the use of sight. As a result, it has increased her skills greatly.
  • When he heard of the House of Time and Space, he immediately left to ask them to help him get home. Some denied, due to being already aware of the actual point in which he returns to the past and not wanting to drastically alter time. There were some that agreed, but when Jack attempted to use any time machine, the finished products mysteriously broke down. Jack suspected it was Aku’s doing, and came to the conclusion that he had probably become aware of his ascension. Not wanting to hinder them or even put them in danger, he gave up on that route, saying that he would find another way.
  • Has earned the wired ire of many evil robotic and technologically assisted gods for his vast cybernetic kill count of androids, cyborgs, computers and many other machinations of metallic mayhem. The digital list goes on, from Eggman to Ultron.
    • GLaDOS, however, hates him for a different reason. She managed to trap him once in Aperture Science, taking his sword away in the process, and tried to test him with her various obstacles. Instead of using the portal gun, however, he simply leaped across all of them with his impressive jumping skills, even retrieving his sword (since she hadn’t known about the jumping, she had been taunting him with it in plain sight), all without much issue. She has said nothing about the incident, and has despised him for making a fool out of her ever since.
  • Has also gained rivalries with many swordsmen of the pantheon, such as Cloud and Kenshin. He trains with them when he feels up to it. Was glad to find a fellow samurai in Afro, although he doesn’t really agree with many of his motives and methods.
    • Has been accused of not being a samurai at all, but a ronin…and that it made him better than any actual samurai, since he was not bound by honor and duty, allowing him to be a hero to the people oppressed by Aku. Jack doesn't know what to say of this.
  • Has made friends with the Demoman, after finding him very similar to his friend, the Scotsman. Well, similar albeit drunk, anyway.
    • Similarly, he has found a friend in Leonidas after fighting alongside a futuristic version of the Spartan from his world.
  • Joined up with the combat division of the GUAG, wanting to stop many other evils like Aku. Melkor has set his threat level to Very High, since he is able to take on armies of mooks and hold his own against some pretty high ranking villains.
  • He is disgusted by how Mundus looks like an angel yet is just as bad, if not worse than Aku.
    Jack: *to Mundus* You take the guise of a holy being, yet your essence is that of evil and darkness! You are little better than Aku, and you shall share his fate in time!
  • Had a run in with the Lich, who attempted to, unsurprisingly, kill him and destroy his sword. Jack was able to resist any mind control tricks on him, however, as he had fought off a possession by Aku himself before. Jack was able to ‘kill’ the Lich, but after being told of his abilities, he is wary of future attacks on him by the radiated wizard.
  • Many goddesses (and some gods) of the House of Love absolutely adore it when his clothes become tattered and ripped, revealing his impressive figure. Many have tried to get into a romantic relationship with him, though he has rejected all of them, feeling that he is too dangerous to be around or would simply be too distracted.
  • Constantly has to visit the House of Craft so Rarity can fix his robes. She always ends up asking how it managed to happen this time, and he always has an interesting story to tell. The other Equestrian gods head to Rarity's home when Jack does to listen in as a result.
  • Absolutely despises Melkor with every fiber of his being. (Then again, anyone with a modicum of morality would.) Jack thinks he is the most disgustingly evil thing he has ever known and believes he is the reason Aku exists to begin with.
  • Is very wary of Princess Celestia after having a risky run in with a similar looking forest spirit a while back.
  • He has been seen preparing to travel once more; speculation at the time said this was due to the fact that his story will finally be continued. Rumors have circulated that he has gotten some armor of some sort. When he later confirmed that he was finally going to continue his journey, everyone was cheering to the rooftops and congratulated him, though he didn't understand why.
    • The journey proved to be his last in the mortal realms, where he managed to travel back in time and slay Aku for good and restored the timeline and undid the Bad Future. Even if he lost his true love in process, Jack regained the hope for the better future in his world. Though returning to the Pantheon afterwards, he's noted that with the situation at the Pantheon, Melkor may find a way to bring Aku back at least within the Pantheon. Despite so, Jack stands ready to face Aku again any time, nothing will break him, and at the very least, his world is safe and nothing will change it.
  • One day. He found Finn and Jake chasing after him. All of his allies had split up to look for him after learning that Ashi would be ascending within the next ten minutes. Jack took off before the pair could finish talking. He jumped over the crowd that had already gathered so he would be in front. He would have never forgiven himself if he had not been the first one to see her. Luckily, he was.
    • They often have lunch now in the House of Nature. Ashi enjoys being able to see all the beautiful plants Jack had told her about. Jack enjoys just being able to see her. That is not to say Ashi isn't glad to be with him, asking him questions just to make their time together last longer. They've realized being in different Houses makes scheduling dates hard.
    • He has also helped mediate meetings between Ashi and Six along side Toriel.
  • Ashi once told Jack about a friend named Sanji who's a really good cook. Jack knew who she was talking about and was a bit worried given Sanji's Casanova Wannabe reputation, but it turns out he wanted to meet Jack and asked her to bring the Samurai over for a meal with the Straw Hats. When the table conversation turned to why Sanji has never made a move Ashi, the chef offered this:
    Sanji: Easy, Jack. She's your sweetheart, not mine.
    • Zoro also wanted to test his swordsmanship, so they sparred after dinner in the House of Combat. Zoro was able to overwhelm Jack at points, but Jack was quick to spot openings in Zoro's game to be able to force him back, even managing to stab the side of his ribs once. The fight stopped a few minutes after that as Zoro started to noticeably wear down. In the end, he walked away reassured about Sanji, as well as looking forward to Zoro's next challenge.
  • Recently met and confronted Afro Samurai on a bridge at which point they smelled the blood on each others blades. A battle broke out. The two crossed blades and Jack pushed through Afro's attempts to fight dirty. In the end Jack won but at the cost of an arm. After the fight he was seen walking away wearing the Number One headband.
  • Also holds a position in the House of Heroes.

Lesser Gods

    Ling Yao 
Ling Yao, God of Illegals (12th Prince of Xing, Lin Yao, Young Master, Young Lord, Idiot Prince, Greedling)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ling_profile.jpg
Click here  for Greedling
  • Lesser God (Intermediate when bonded with Greed)
  • Symbol: The symbol of Xing
  • Theme Music: Xing Symphony ~Overture~, To Be King
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: The Illegal, King Incognito, All Xingese People Know Kung Fu, Friendship Through Conflict, Greed, Anti-Hero, Seeking a Source of Immortality, Allies With His Possessor, Eyes Always Shut, Obfuscating Stupidity, Badass Normal, Once Bonded With a Homunculus (Until Greed Sacrificed Himself), Benevolent Boss, A Father to His Men
  • Domains: Greed, Ambition, Leadership, Honor, Skill, Companionship, Royalty
  • Heralds: Lan Fan and Fu (his retainers)
  • Interested in: Xerneas
  • Allies: Edward Elric, Alphonse Elric, Greed (once hosted him), the rest of their friends, Zuko, Daenerys Targaryen, Scrooge McDuck, Ashi, Teddie, Edward Newgate, Jeanne d'Arc, Liu Bei, Marth, King Artoria Pendragon, Aang, Korra, Lin Beifong, Mako, generally those who are caring leaders or virtuous royals
  • Enemies: Führer King Bradley, Father, Dante, the other Homunculi of the Ouroboros, Darkseid, Frieza, Lord Voldemort, Zapp Brannigan, the Tyrannical Figures sub-house, Charles zi Britannia, Larfleeze, Azula, any leader who sees their men as disposable
  • Pities: Tommen Baratheon
  • Supported by: Sae Niijima
  • Ling Yao is one of the many children of the Xing Emperor, and part of the resulting deadly inter-house conflict over the succession of the throne, seeking to become the next emperor and help his clan. An illegal immigrant to Amestris, his attempt to find immortality led him to meet the Elric brothers, and become the host to the Homunculus Greed. While he acts goofy, he's far more cunning than he looks.
  • Though a good man at heart, Ling is greedy. He once embraced a trap Father had set to control him and allowed the then-absorbed Greed to be reborn in his body due to their shared avarice. It was meant to be a Grand Theft Me, but he managed to gain shared control of his body and it became a Symbiotic Possession, the two ending up as good friends. Upset at his death, the two were happy to see each other in the Pantheon.
  • On the other hand, there's King Bradley. Of all the Homunculi, Ling is most opposed to the Führer since their views on humanity and the responsibility and existence of true kings put them at odds from the moment they first met each other. Even when Ling became host to Greed, they weren't quite the same at all, since Ling willingly gave himself to Greed and accepted his possession, allowing himself to exist within it, while Bradley struggled with the souls of his Stone to the point he doesn't even know whether the one soul that survived his conversion is his original one or not.
  • Dante of the Deep Forest states that she recalled seeing someone who looked similar to Ling among the State Alchemists in the Ishval Civil War. This has him curious about one of his brothers having possibly taken the smuggling route across the desert into Amestris before him, at least in her timeline. Aside from that, they are not on good terms; he finds her sickening in her desire to wipe out countless lives just to extend her own, and hates that she considers her timeline's version of Bradley to be her masterpiece.
  • While he bonded with the living embodiment of greed, he has no respect for the keeper of the orange light of avarice, Larfleeze. The sole member of the Orange Lantern Corps, avarice has completely consumed Agent Orange into a Psychopathic Manchild easily distracted by want. Much like Greed, he believes that Ling Yao is a rival for the orange light and fights him over it. The Xingese prince thinks he's pathetic, though a bit pitiful since his power has practically enslaved him.
  • In the Pantheon, he's searching for a form of immortality that doesn't require sacrifice like the Philosopher's Stone. He is currently trying to convince Xerneas that he is worthy. Greed initially pointed out to him that in the Pantheon everyone is immortal, but Ling expressed that he wanted a tangible solution he could take back to Xing.
    • Voldemort takes umbrage with all of this due to feeling only he can have immortality and Ling is competition. The Xingese prince was horrified to learn about the horcruxes due to how they use murder, something nauseating and the mutilation of one's own soul to achieve immortality.
  • Ling Yao's philosophy when it comes to leadership is that one should be A Father to His Men. No-one should be treated as disposable, even if they treat themselves as such. As such, he has nothing but contempt towards the various tyrants in the Pantheon who do. Aside from Voldemort, those he holds particular hatred towards are Darkseid (who mixes this trope up with something worse and wants EVERYONE to suffer), Frieza (who casually offs his minions if they fail him, waits until they're all dead to fight and once killed them to show off his power), and Zapp Brannigan (who wipes out countless men in his thoughtless and idiotic military plans). He pities Azula for being both a victim and perpetrator of this crime, but he will go through her if he must to stop King Bradley or Frieza; actually, she's the one who hates him for being too much like her brother Zuko's soft side.
  • On the other side of the coin, those that truly care about their subordinates are people he respects. As such, he gets along with Edward Newgate, Jeanne d'Arc and Liu Bei. Likewise, they respect his consideration and compassion for his subordinates and are glad to see he became the next Xing Emperor after his father died.
  • Ling seems to respect Scrooge McDuck as they are both very greedy and have Anti-Hero traits, but they ultimately have a good heart, plus Scrooge made his riches legitimately. He seems to get along with Teddie as his desire to have friends reminds him fondly of Greed's true desire for friendship. Finding out the two of them are friends as well was icing on the cake.
  • Has issues with his father like Edward Elric. Unlike Elric, his father is not a good man like Hohenheim would turn out to be, seeking out immortality with no qualms about things like sacrificing people for a Philosopher's Stone. Ling Yao sees a lot of his father in another emperor in the Pantheon — Charles zi Britannia. They're both uncaring, have dozens of partners and children and have had conflict fester between their offspring. And he thinks Charles is even worse for apparently encouraging it, not to mention his ultimate plot bearing some similarity to that of the Homunculi.
  • Feels pretty bad for Tommen Baratheon, due to how he was raised making him a complete pawn in the game the nobility has played, one who was never able to become more than a Puppet King. He wants to give the kid advice on how to break out of it and do good for the realm. He also feels bad for Ashi due to how her evil father controlled her, and respects her for helping Samurai Jack get a hold of himself and generally being a good person.
  • Gets along with the aforementioned Zuko and Daenerys Targaryen. Both of them have pretty rotten royal fathers, a lot worse than his own in fact, both have dealt with the vicious game of royalty, yet both ended up stronger and ended up as good people. He gets along with Marth and Artoria as well, due to being kind-hearted royalty.
  • Should some villainous or corrupt attorney put him on trial regarding his status, Ling has a waiting arm of defense in former prosecutor Sae Niijima. Yes, he was illegally smuggled into Amestris, but rather than just seek his own selfish ends at the expense of others, he wound up helping a loyal group of friends save the world from a supernatural conspiracy, and as a young emperor he would enter negotiations to bolster proper travel and trade relations between Amestris and Xing, ultimately helping the country he snuck into, thus earning Sae's full approval.
  • Met with Aang, Korra, and Lin Beifong after hearing about them through Zuko and Greed. Gets along finely with both Avatars, who are much more easygoing than Edward but not as much as Alphonse, plus they seem to understand alkahestry and the Dragon's Pulse more easily than most due to their experiences. As for Chief Beifong, Ling finds Greed's connection with a lady that just about shares his given name to be hilarious, but ultimately respects Lin for her tenacity and fierce protectiveness towards her charges. She in turn sees him as a smarter, more responsible example for the Earth Kingdom's Prince Wu. Much of the same is true regarding Mako, one of the Chief's detectives.

    Madeline (Celeste
Madeline, Goddess of Mountain Climbing Journeys and the Air Dash (Celeste)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/celeste_1.jpg
"Badeline" 
  • One can find a PICO-8 computer in her temple that has a freeware version of her game, which can be played here.
  • After seeing a recording of Madeline escaping the Mirror Temple in Celeste Mountain with a crystal-imprisoned Theo in tow, someone noticed strange sounds that were akin to speech recorded backwards. This is what they found after reversing recorded footage, and they discovered two things: 1) Madeline had been suffering from depression prior to her trip to the mountain, and 2) she really is older than she looks.
    • How old is she actually, despite looking like a kid? Enough to own and drive a car, have a job, and even drink.
  • Usually, her hair is red, but it turns blue after performing a single dash, after which she can't do so again until it turns red again once she makes contact with the ground (or a spring [even if it's on a wall], or some other non-wall surface) but it does flash white before that, and if she dashes at that moment, she gets a quick jump and her hair turns red again for another dash. After fusing with Badeline at Celeste Mountain, her hair turns pink, where she gets an extra air dash, after which her hair turns red until she lands again. She actually has a lot of advanced movement techniques that she can pull off, enabling her to overcome most any platforming obstacle, no matter how obscenely difficult they are (so long as they're not Unwinnable, of course).
  • Got along well with Spider-Man (a fellow wall-climber among other things) as well as Mario and Link (whose adventures involve climbing to high places, like mountains, castles or skyscrapers). As a result, though, she's also gotten into the bad side of Bowser and Ganondorf.
  • Heard that there was another Madeline and admires her pluckiness, as well as having been able to endure suffering appendicitis and having it treated.
  • Made friends with Scott Pilgrim where they shared their stories of having their own dark sides (Badeline and Nega-Scott respectively) that they needed to accept to become better people.
  • Wanting to find a way to allow Badeline to manifest outside her temple's bounds, Madeline sent a plea to the Court of the Gods. They replied that if she desires it that badly, she should prove it with a test and recommended her to Yu Narukami. Upon visiting him and discussing stuff, Madeline realized that in a way, her acceptance of Badeline is just like how the Investigation Team got their Personas. Getting an idea, she requested a trip to the TV World.
    • Her resultant dungeon was, fittingly, a version of Celeste Mountain, where she had first met Part of Her, though shrunken to the size of a typical dungeon, its floors themed after areas she's climbed. Additionally, Badeline, who has since gotten acclimated to the dungeon and can manifest in the TV World, was supportive of the idea, having already reconciled with Madeline in the mountain, though she warned she wasn't going to make it easy.
    • One arduous trip later with Yu and some of his friends (as well as a member of the Court to observe the test), she reached the top floor, and Badeline threw down against the party. At the end of the fight, Badeline was defeated and proud of Madeline for finding a way, and the Court enabled Badeline to manifest outside Madeline's temple and the TV World. Madeline still got a Persona card out of the deal, though. Also, her default hair color has turned to pink.
    • Since her trip to the TV World Madeline's default hair color has turned to pink, only turning red once again after one air dash before ground contact or when Badeline's summoned to defend her, However, for some reason, she can't summon Badeline when her hair's blue from expending her air dashes (though she can summon while mid-air after one air dash, after which her hair then turns blue), and needs to land first.
      • For the record, Badeline has not become Madeline's Persona, and can come out whenever she wants to.
  • Has an additional temple in the sub-house of Abilities.

    Sicily 
Sicily, Goddess of Mailing Oneself (The Demon Angel)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sicily.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: One of her tome weapons
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Big Brother Worship, Hair Antennae (like Laharl), Long Lost Sibling, Supreme Chef, Friendless Background, being a "Demon Angel"
  • Domains: Delivery, Mail, Angels, Siblings
  • Allies: Laharl, Etna, Flonne, Lamington, Big Boss, Fluttershy, Prinnies, Patricia Martin, Estelle, Colette Brunel
  • Opposed by: Any demon who dislikes Laharl
  • When she discovered that her brother Laharl and his friends were in the Pantheon, Sicily hopped into a box and had herself mailed to the Pantheon (so she wouldn't get lost). When Laharl found out, he remarked that it was still a stupid idea just like the other time she tried it. Regardless, he accepted her and saw to it that she had a position in the Pantheon.
  • Not only has she mailed herself, but Sicily has been known to throw opponents inside of a box, fly them to the tundra, and smash them with an ice hammer. With these repeated acts of mailing living individuals, Sicily was given dominion over this trope in the House of Travel.
  • Big Boss was impressed with Sicily's application of cardboard boxes when flying enemies away, citing it as a synthesis of hiding in a box and using the Fulton Recovery System. The two of them seem to be working on something that could be big in the world of cardboard boxes.
  • Some gods who are only vaguely familiar with Laharl are confused on how he could have an angel for a sister (a relationship which does not sit well with Ghirahim especially). Lamington had to step in and clear things up: Laharl's mom was pregnant when she sacrificed her life, and requested that Sicily become an angel in her stead. Most gods understood clear enough.
  • Is very fond of Rise Kujikawa, as she reminds Sicily of an idol she was a fan of back down in the Netherworld. She also looks up to Yu Narukami, though is fairly certain Laharl could still take him.
  • Her Evility and affinities combined are able to reduce fire, water, and wind damage dealt to her by 100% with other elements reduced by 75%. This apparently also includes "Almighty" damage''. The House of Nature and many in the House of Magic are making sure to avoid fighting her. She herself does not go out of her way to sow conflict, lest someone decide she's enough of a threat to break out either the exotic and far more dangerous Pierce skills, which can punch past her barriers, or worse, the Reaper, who carries a selection of spells designed specifically to break elemental defenses.
    • Rumors of the Sisterhood scouting her out as a candidate in the "Magus Killers" due to her being nearly impervious to most forms of direct damage magic have caused even more dread amongst the house of magic.
  • She regularly visits and takes care of Prinnies, whom she finds absolutely adorable. This is a sentiment that Fluttershy also shares and the two have become fast friends.
    • Valvatorez, however, tells the both of them not to spoil them as despite their cuddly appearance, they are still sinners and need to be properly disciplined so that their sins can be redeemed.

    Hazel 
Hazel, God of Searching for a New Home (Hazel-rah, Walnut)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hazelwd.gif
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The silhouette of a rabbit against the full moon
  • Theme Song: "Bright Eyes" and "Climbing the Down"
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Travelling to find a new home, species preyed on by everything, clever bunnies, protective of his baby brother Fiver, first leader of Watership Down, gets a permanent limp but remains leader, joining folk hero El-ahrairah's Owsla at death
  • Domains: Rabbits, Travel, Adventure, Heroism, Leadership, Xenofiction
  • Heralds: The other rabbits who made the journey note , Kehaar
  • Allies: Bugs Bunny, Fievel Mousekewitz, Tiger, Littlefoot, the sub-House of Rabbits & Rodents in general, Fluttershy, SCP-524
  • Enemies: Elmer Fudd, Killer Rabbit
  • Fears: Everything
  • Respects: Firestar (mutual)
  • Here's a story about adorable bunnies. Or not. Acting on omens from his younger brother Fiver, Hazel gathered a few willing rabbits and together they left their birth warren of Sandleford to escape its impending destruction. Armed with Hazel's cool head and natural leadership, Fiver's future sight, Bigwig's strength, and Blackberry's genius, among others, the group of rabbits went on a journey fraught with peril to find a new home. Through a combination of smarts and luck, all of them managed to survive the journey and they found their new warren in the hill called Watership Down.
    • Granted, finding Watership Down wasn't the end of it. After realizing they were lacking does, the rabbits found an unusual warren called Efrafa, from which they thought they could ask for some does. Efrafa turned out to be a totalitarian state ruled with an iron paw by Woundwort, and no rabbits could leave there, not even our heroes. So instead, they convinced some of the rabbits to make an escape. This led to a war with Efrafa, which Watership Down won, and the latter convinced the former to change their rigid ways to ones more natural for rabbits.
    • At the end of his life, Hazel's accomplishments earned him a visit from El-ahrairah himself, asking if he would like to join his Owsla. Reckoning that his time was come, Hazel went with the legendary hero peacefully. El-ahrairah then told him he had a special duty in mind for him, which was for him to live in the Pantheon so rabbits like themselves would be represented. In honor of the dangerous journey Hazel and co. had to undertake, the Chief Rabbit was awarded with The Migration.
  • Hazel was allowed to bring with him the rabbits who followed him out of Sandleford (excluding Canon Foreigner Violet), and also the seagull Kehaar because everyone thinks he's hilarious, but no more than that. The Main House refuses to risk a repeat of the rabbits' creation myth on the Pantheon's premises.
  • Hazel and co. shock a lot of deities who expect them to be cute, fluffy bunnies that they can pet, when they're really wild, grim animals who'll fight with tooth and claw to defend themselves if they must. Hazel thinks human stereotypes of rabbits are positively ridiculous.
  • Their temple is a warren specially dug out for them and styled after their home. It's a sight one would expect in the House of Beast rather than in the House of Travel.
  • Hazel is considered to be an unusual choice for a leader, since among rabbits it's the strongest one who gets to lead, and Hazel is not a particularly talented fighter nor muscular enough. Bigwig would be a more orthodox choice for a leader, but he bows down to Hazel's charisma and ability to think outside the box, as a lot of the success in the rabbits' adventures can be credited to these qualities.
  • Because of the whole "all the world will be your enemy" thing, Hazel and his rabbits are pretty timid around the other deities, especially with a lot of them wielding phenomenal powers that are incomprehensible to the lapine thought process. Generally, when someone tries approaching them, well-meaning or not, they will scurry to hide.
    • They are more confident with deities their size or smaller than them. That's how they easily became friends with Fievel, who has had a similar experience journeying from his birth home to find a better living. Although the rabbits find Fievel's pelt (clothes) peculiar. They also don't mind herbivores, as they made friends with Littlefoot and his crew for much the same reason as Fievel. Fievel and Littlefoot have additionally taught Hazel and co. to trust their friends Tiger and Chomper despite being predators.
  • Although at first frightened of his strange human-like stance and sheer size, after hearing Bugs Bunny's tales, Hazel and co. think that the Rascally Rabbit god is very similar to their mythical hero El-ahrairah, especially with how he uses his cunning to humiliate those that would normally prey on a rabbit like him. They have actually speculated that Bugs, who has some strange powers, may very well be El-ahrairah. This theory is rather amusing to Bugs.
    • Elmer Fudd sometimes tries to hunt them, especially when he's feeling frustrated that he can't catch Bugs. On those occasions, Bugs intervenes with his usual antics to protect the warren. This assured the rabbits that Bugs is on their side despite his strange appearance for a rabbit, and they're grateful to him.
  • One time, Angel Bunny tried to join the warren. This was because of him being more bratty than usual to Fluttershy that week and her getting so mad that she said he'd never make it out there in the wild without her, so he set out to prove himself by joining the Watership Down rabbits. From the get-go, Bigwig was doubtful that a domesticated and spoiled rabbit like Angel could handle himself, but Hazel argued that Strawberry and the Hutch rabbits got on pretty well, so they could at least give him a chance. Between having nothing to eat but grass and getting worked to the bone by Bigwig, it's safe to say that Angel Bunny learned his lesson. So he went back to the domesticated life with Fluttershy and started respecting her more. For about two weeks before his personality relapsed. He has consistent respect for the rabbits for their tough lifestyle, though.
    • A good thing to come out of this is that Angel Bunny managed to convince the rabbits that Fluttershy was a friend to all animals and they had nothing to fear from her, so she's one of the few deities they allow to approach them without running away, especially since she brings them flayrah (food rabbits consider exceptional, like lettuce or carrots).
  • Hazel is greatly respected by most rabbits in the Pantheon, not only for his heroic deeds, but also because his tale might be considered the ultimate story about rabbits in their purest, most natural state. Mice also like him for protecting one of their number. Other relationships with assorted rabbits:
    • Hazel and co. find SCP-524 to be very peculiar with his extremely varied diet. Since Walter seems to do well with eating rocks and other things that aren't alive, and Fiver doesn't seem to sense evil in him, Hazel thinks he's harmless enough and allows him to be a regular visitor in his warren. How he'd react to his autocannibalism is still up in the air, as there's always enough stuff around the warren that Walter hasn't felt the need to do that.
    • While his bloodlust isn't as surprising to Hazel as it is to most other deities, since rabbits like Hazel are used to fighting bloody battles for territory, he cannot abide the Killer Rabbit's sheer carnage. Hazel considers him to be far worse than Woundwort.
  • Firestar respects them a lot on account of their similar lifestyles and how they went on journeys to find new homes, as well as the fact that Hazel is a great leader. Hazel returns the sentiment, but the fact that Firestar is a wild cat with a history of preying on rabbits (although they're far from being his primary prey, but Hazel had a pretty bad encounter with a cat once) stops their relationship from going any further. Although since Hazel and co. live in open spaces while Firestar prefers the forest, they do not normally cross paths anyway.
    • Bigwig cringed in sympathy when he learned Firestar had wires snagged around his neck twice and one of those took one of his lives; Bigwig almost died the same way once.

  • In mid-19th century rural Sweden, Karl Oskar and Kristina lived in poverty, trying to make do with the farm Karl Oskar inherited from his father. Karl Oskar got the idea to move to the USA to look for a better living, but Kristina, not wanting to be away from her homeland and afraid for their children's safety, resisted. She changed her mind when their poor conditions led to the loss of their eldest daughter. So Karl Oskar, Kristina and their surviving children went, along with others such as Karl Oskar's intellectual brother Robert and his friend Arvid, Kristina's priest uncle Danjel and religious ex-prostitute Ulrika, among others, all trying to find a place in America they could live in that they couldn't find in Sweden. Even after reaching the promised land, the immigrants had to struggle for many years through wilderness, harsh weather and wars before finally making a good living. But results would show, even if they came at a high price.
  • Unfortunately Kristina was part of that high price as a miscarriage took her life before she could see the fruits of her and Karl Oskar's labor. Karl Oskar lived about thirty more years and never got over the loss of Kristina, but at least their descendants would have opportunities they wouldn't have in Sweden. With their tale being a very detailed account of what immigrants had to deal with, and pitying the spouses for their tragic separation, the Pantheon decided Karl Oskar and Kristina were just perfect for representing An Immigrant's Tale and had them ascended. Fortunately for them, unlike their journey to America, settling in the Pantheon didn't take any time at all.
  • Their title originally belonged to Fievel Mousekewitz, but the young Russian mouse didn't have a problem when asked to take on another one to allow the ascension of a nice couple of farmers with a similar history to him. Karl Oskar and Kristina, after getting over the strangeness that a mouse could talk and have feelings like them instead of just being vermin, are quite taken with Fievel and are protective of him after hearing how he was lost from his family when he first arrived to America, giving Karl Oskar and Kristina flashbacks of how they almost lost one of their children while traveling. Since Fievel sometimes misses his temple in the House of Travel, he may be found spending time in their farm.
  • Their temple is their farm as it was by the time Karl Oskar died. When Kristina died, they still lived in a fairly shabby cabin, so Kristina is proud that Karl Oskar's efforts resulted in a large and comfortable home and a farm that could easily sustain their large family. Kristina loves tending to their Astrachan apple tree since it reminds her of home, due to its seeds being a memento from Sweden (also, the last thing she tasted before she died was an Astrachan). When they sell their produce at the Pantheon's fairs, the heirloom apples are always a highlight.
  • Their temple happened to get placed right next to the rabbit warren led by Hazel, perhaps not coincidentally as the tropes they hold are closely related. At first it made both sets of deities uneasy, as Karl Oskar feared Hazel would eat the vegetables from the farm, while Hazel feared Karl Oskar and Kristina in general, since they're human. However, friendly deities explained to both rabbit and human couple about each other's stories, and were surprised that their journeys to find new homes in foreign lands were practically identical (not to mention the similarities between some of their Heralds, such as Karl Oskar's younger brother Robert to Fiver, the cantankerous Ulrika to Bigwig, or storytellers Jonas Petter and Dandelion), which made them sympathetic to each other. As a result, Hazel has promised not to steal anything from the Nilssons' farm, and Karl Oskar promised not to hunt Hazel or anyone else from his warren, and Kristina sets aside some lettuce leaves for the warren once a month.
  • Like so many immigrants that came from Scandinavia, it was in Minnesota that Karl Oskar and Kristina settled. This put them on good terms with Marge Gunderson, a Minnesotan policewoman who embodies everything nice about the local people. Some deities have come up with the theory that Marge is descended from the Nilssons. Whatever the case may be, Marge likes to visit them sometimes to get better acquainted with her roots, and as a policewoman she'll protect them from evildoers. Karl Oskar and Kristina, for their part, are proud that Marge is an upstanding citizen and competent law enforcer, though Kristina had to chide Marge when she heard about how she faced two violent criminals while being heavily pregnant.
  • While Karl Oskar was perfectly content to leave Sweden behind and never regretted immigrating, Kristina was always plagued by homesickness and never managed to adapt to the USA. It was a source of comfort to Kristina (and also Karl Oskar, to an extent) to learn that there were several born-and-bred Swedish people living in the Pantheon. The first ones they met were Karin and Maria, at a fair, due to Dukemon becoming fascinated with the couple's home-made bread. Karl Oskar isn't that enthused about them since they are "ladies of consequence", but Kristina is glad they're around as they remind her of home. Karin has her own fascination with Kristina since she looks like Maria, but is a much better person; as a result, Karin is protective of her, but doesn't show it much for fear of seeming condescending.
  • They obviously get along pretty well with other immigrants and settlers who lived in the times of the wild west. For an example of the former there's Maria, a Puerto Rican who comes from the West End of New York, and her boyfriend Tony by association. Unlike Maria, Karl Oskar and Kristina didn't deal with much, if any, discrimination in their time, due to the sparse population, but they sympathize with the plights of those who came later. They're also friends with Jill McBain, who had a hand in settling the west by helping to build a train station in an out of the way town. In a past time, Karl Oskar and Kristina might've minded she was a prostitute, but their experiences with Ulrika have taught them to see past that.
    • Although Karl Oskar disapproves of his gambling addiction, he identifies with how Roman Bellic far prefers his new home to the one he was born in. The two mutually respect each other for working at an honest trade despite starting from nothing, though Karl Oskar takes Roman's history of debt and involvement with the mafia as a cautionary tale and hopes he has learned from it.
    • Unfortunately, the fact that they were not born in America and instead moved there puts them in President Garrison list of people who need to be "fucked to death", a declaration that is really quite appaling to Karl Oskar and Kristina. Entreatments to Garrison that if it wasn't for immigrants like them, the USA probably wouldn't exist like it is today, haven't really had any effect.
